Let’s Take a Moment for Assessment

Whether you’re assessing your finances or assessing a home inspector’s report to decide whether or not to purchase a home or make a significant repair, we have you covered this month.

What’s in the Box?

Financial freedom is a goal for many people. Why? There are lots of reasons to reduce and eliminate debt, including a better credit score, fewer monthly expenses and reduced stress. The U.S. and Canadian Marketing Flyers provide an overview of the great reasons to reduce debt and offer tips to help your clients become debt-free, if they haven’t already. This is a character piece that shows you care as well as an opportunity to connect your clients with financial professionals in your network.

For the Alternate, we turn our attention to home inspections. Although a home inspection may only cross a person’s mind when they’re thinking of buying a house, there are many reasons for potential sellers and regular homeowners to get an inspection as well. The Alternate Flyer provides a general overview of the home inspection process, including reasons to get one, what to expect and what it includes. This is a character piece that provides you the opportunity to connect your clients with a home inspector in your network. If you are a home inspector, this piece gives you the opportunity to discuss the process with your clients.

Regardless of which kit you subscribe to, don’t forget to include the type of referral you’re looking for this month at the bottom of your cover letter.
